I just had mine re-cored by a shop in Fremont, CA. He did an excellent (perfect) job and is about the only guy in the Bay Area doing old time radiators. The other bunch out here is the Brass Works in Paso Robles, CA-they have a web site, but they are expensive.

BM did mine for $550 including originally testing it to find the leak I gave it to him to fix. I don't know if he will take a shipment and return it, but I can ask him (I suspect he does since he is kind of a go-to guy for this kind of work around here). He did my 8N radiator in about 4 days. He is doing a 9N for me now, but has been delayed as the core he ordered was made up wrong and he sent it back to get it right.

I'll check with him Monday and see about shipping and returning. You of course will have to check with UPS to see what the round trip would cost and I can check it out when he completes it before he sends it out if you decide to go that route. It may not make much difference in shipping cost from a state near you or to California-I don't know.
